CAH’s Adult Day Program (ADP Oshawa) offers physical and cognitive activation and socialization programming in French, three days a week, to seniors in Durham Region. Professional recreationists ensure a welcoming and safe environment in which clients can enjoy their day. (Note that we also offer Adult Day Program in Toronto, five days a week.)
This program, funded by the Central East LHIN (Ministry of Health), is suitable for people aged 55+ experiencing a decline in physical and/or cognitive autonomy. Eligibility for the ADP is based on a standardized assessment of functional capacity.
CAH’s ADP provides much-needed respite
for caregivers caring for their loved ones!
Who needs ADP?
The ADP was created to provide respite for caregivers and help seniors spend a fun day engaging in physical and cognitive activities in good company. Active engagement can often prolong autonomy and prevent premature referral to long term care. Those wishing to participate in the ADP in Oshawa meet with a case manager to assess their needs. Call 905-914-0126 for more information.
